About Splunk Light accounts
Splunk Light supports two pre-defined user roles: Admin and User. The Admin role can add users and manage account settings for users. The User role only has access to its own settings. Neither role can create custom roles or modify access that particular roles have.
Splunk Light uses Splunk Authentication and does not support integration with LDAP or single sign-on.
Admin versus User roles
If you are logged into Splunk Light with a User account, you can only view your own account details and edit your own password.
If you are logged into Splunk Light with an Admin account, you can view and manage all the accounts on the instance. Management tasks include adding new accounts, changing account passwords, changing the account type to have User or Admin permissions, and deleting the account.
If you are logged into Splunk Light Free, you are limited to a single Admin account. You cannot add additional accounts or change your account type.
Splunk Light versus Splunk Light Free
The number of accounts you can have depends on your Splunk Light license.
|Splunk Light Free||1||Admin|
|Splunk Light||Up to 5||Admin, User|
